Erratic Jeev signs off on a poor note

A bogey hat-trick in the last three holes marred Jeev Milkha Singh’s card as the Indian golfer returned a disappointing two-over 74 to sign off tied 47th in the Open de Andalucia Costa del Sol.

Jeev ended the week at three-under 285. Jeev was three under through first nine with birdies on third, fourth and sixth holes.

Meanwhile, 31-year-old Frenchman Julien Quesne produced the round of his life with a 64 on the final day to grab the biggest prize of his life.

He won 166,660 euros as the winner’s prize, way beyond the 22,464 euros he took home for finishing 17th at last month’s Avantha Masters in India. Quesne graduated from last season’s Challenge Tour.

Atwal disappoints

Indian golfer Arjun Atwal faltered after a good start to card a three-over 74 that saw him finish tied 51st in the Transitions Championships in Palm Harbor.

Atwal, who made his first cut of the season this week, finished with a total of two-under 282. Atwal started with a birdie on the first and then parred the next five holes before disaster struck him in the form of a triple bogey on the par-four seventh hole.

A bogey on 10th was followed by birdies on 12th and 14th and then came two more bogeys on 16th and 17th.

Luke Donald won the title.
